Since these units are often left unattended in remote locations it is essential that they are
equipped with the latest networking technologies, therefore they include: self
ming and
healing mesh topology, multi
hopping and, where appropriate, the 802.11n wireless
protocol. Finally to guarantee cable connections they include cable connectors which won’t
become easily disconnected.
